I knew from the get-go that Ma and I were going to a doctor's appointment and then shopping afterwards for engagement outfits (woohoo!!!)
For breakfast, I had a banana, 2 pieces of bacon, and a handful of salted cashews. In my Communication and Gender class, we talked about the gendered education system we have in place.
Think about it: many young boys have trouble in school because they are told to sit down and be quiet/don't move. What child (especially boys) doesn't have energy that needs to be released in those younger grades? Or, many women and minorities find it difficult to imagine themselves in places of power, science teachers, administrative, etc. because there are no images or examples in the textbooks we read. Our textbooks are full of men and the accomplishments they have made. My professor said she read in a history book, "...the pioneers took their wives and cattle with them". Is that to say the women weren't pioneers as well? Just something interesting to think about.
I know, I know, physical appearance isn't everything, but it's been a real struggle to "feel" pretty lately, especially with my hair. I've been trying to grow my bangs out and I realized I miss them almost as much as I miss donuts. The goal was to find a few outfits that would help my self-esteem, so I could whole heartedly focus on Levi during our pictures. I have to say, I found some pretty DANG good dresses.
For dinner, Ma made some guac and I had plantain chips and salted cashews. It was pretty chill. Then, I passed out on the couch.
This whole day I had runny poops and my stomach hurt. At Chipotle, I had a salad with double barbacoa and mild salsa. I ate almost the whole thing and I wasn't full. Still have no idea what's wrong with my body. I messaged my old Paleo personal trainer and she said my system might still be fixing itself. BLAH. Oh well, 16 days to go.
